In line with the National Strategy for Maths, JCoSS focuses on the four key principles of Expectation, Engagement, Progression and Transformation. High expectations ensure that challenging targets are set for all students. We support them with approaches to teaching and learning that engage and motivate, requiring students’ active participation. All maths classes are set by ability from Year 7 onwards, where they receive targeted teaching and support. Well-paced progression from primary school is fundamental to sustain development and we achieve it with transformational teaching and learning as well as the very latest technology. Regular assessments and carefully planned lessons ensure that students continually make the progress expected of them.
